Sex or the trainer. You are still getting your leg over.

You just get yourselves some fresh hops, sew them into a little pillow, 20 x 20cm is heaps, and sleep with it under your normal pillow. The aroma has a mild sedative quality. You can buy ready made ones, but they are easy enough to make.

I sort of do this -- except I throw the hops into a big pot of boiling "barley extract". Let it cool, chuck some yeast in it, wait a bit and bottle.

Now that will send you to sleep :D

Being a bit more serious -- lavender oil. A few drops around your pillow will help too.
